4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fantastic. Dec 2010 bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with small white head and nice carbonation. Very tart, with huge lemon, kiwi, and lime...huge citrus in this regard. A nice finish of hay and funk. Very good. Upland makes some amazing stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thnx to Geoffrey
Pours unclear blonde . Head fades instantly , and completely .
Smell is funky , herbal , sour .
Taste is sour , very lemon-sour . SUPER intense in the sourness ( HOLY CRAP THIS IS SOUR ) , not so much kiwi comes out , sadly enough . very dry as well , and once again, SOUR ! one of the most sour beers I’ve had .
Balance is far gone , yet I love extremes , so I enjoyed this .
Nice , but very simple ( sour bacteria added rather than a complex mixture of different Brettanomyces - species ) .

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy light orange/golden color with a thin white film. The aroma and flavor have big tart/sour citrus, kiwi, wood, a sweet component that makes the sour kick in more at the finish, a hint of chemical character sneaks in mid palate, light resin, not much vinegar, though there is some acidity. I had the original batch and liked it a touch better.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a very small white head. Aroma is quite funky, with creamsicle, with moderate kiwi – interesting nose. Flavour is uber sour, with loads of creamsicle, and I barely get any kiwi. Quite highly acetic. Not a typical lambic by any means. Vinous, sour and acetic. Interesting stuff. Strips the enamel of my teeth – hard to drink after a while. Nice in small amounts, but difficult to drink due to the acidity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle of the 2013 vintage pours hazy pale yellow orange with tiny fizzy head that disappears fast. Nose is super sour acidic funk, little bits of kiwi and fruit, vinegar. Taste is over the top acidic sour burn, some decent fruity kiwi notes in the finish but they are buried under oppresive acidity. Just too much.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Clownisseur. Pours hazy butterscotch, minimal head, no lacing. Aroma is quite funky, Cantillon-like, oak, lemon. Flavor is extremely tart, lightly funky, lemon and a bit of fruit in the body. Lots of vinegar notes, finishing with a bit of blue cheese. Light body, little carbonation. Not really my thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy golden color. Sour cheese, vinegar and sweet citrus aroma. Very sharp, tart flavor, citrus acidity, lactic finish. Reminds me of those warheads candies: very sharp, acidic, sour flavor. Aside from a "fruitiness", kiwi is not distinguishable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Russell. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is strong funk, kiwi, lactic acid. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart kiwi, acidic, citrus, and sour finish. Good but wish more kiwi flavor.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. The beer pours a hazy translucent golden yellow color with quickly fading head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is overpowering: bright lambic funkiness and fruit sweetness. Flavor is predominantly sour kiwi, as well as other tropical fruits. Carbonation is champagne like with small active bubbles on the palate. Delicious. From notes 11/17/2011.
